About Us

Welcome to Springkell, a beautiful Palladian Mansion built from 1734 and just six miles from historic Gretna Green.

We offer personalised weddings, dinner, bed & breakfast, parties and corporate events. We have three cottages you can stay in, beautiful gardens to explore, and we are well-located for many of Scotland and England's most incredible sights. Springkell is easily accessible, close to the M74 over the Scottish border and a few miles from Lockerbie. London to Carlisle only takes a few hours by train, and we are just over an hour's drive from Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle.

What we say is, "Yes is the answer, what's the question?"



Springkell was built in 1734 and since then has been continually modernised for the changing needs of its inhabitants, without losing its original character. It has been in the Johnson-Ferguson family since the late 1800s, and now reflects all aspects of its nearly 300-year life. The house is warm and comfortable, and best-suited to being filled with happy guests.
